Floral foam is widely used in modern floral arrangements. The current foam available in the market is phenol-formaldehyde foam which is essentially an oil-based material with several toxic chemicals.

This Bio-(floral) Foam is made of 100% fibre from flower stem (mainly carnation and iris). The material aims to simulate and act as an alternative for floral foam. Therefore, it has the properties to absorb and retain water together with the ability to hold flowers

The material is biodegradable, contain no oil-based ingredient or additive, is made of 100% flower waste and is microplastic-free.
